The Best and Worst of BOF

To quote an overused but overly applicable phrase: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”… Whereas there were a lot of moments on Boys over flowers that made us sigh in ecstasy, cry in empathy and spazz giddily… there are also moments where all we wanted was to kill the PD and hang the scriptwriter for the sheer foolishness of some moments of this series…

In memory of Boys Over Flowers and since I am suffering from major withdrawal this Saturday, I am recalling my personal choices for scenes and moments from this obsession that truly hit the spot and those that I can altogether have done without…

MY BEST AND WORST BOF MOMENTS

BEST F4 MOMENT:

F4 in that balcony in Jeju talking about Junpyo’s impending marriage to Jaekyung and how it affects Jandi tied with Junpyo, Jihoo and Yijung kissing Woobin after the truth or dare game in Jandi’s rooftop apartment

FUNNIEST GOO JUNPYO LINE:

Geum Jandi? What’s that? Ahhh… it’s Geum Jandi… I’m so busy that I didn’t even notice that you didn’t even call me for 3 days and 13 hours…

FUNNIEST GEUM JANDI MOMENT:

During the welcome party for Suh Hyeon, she was wearing that wonder woman costume and she snuck in towards the buffet table and spat the tomato that she just put in her mouth when the mean girls found her…

FUNNIEST GEUM JANDI AND GOO JUNPYO MOMENT:

Junpyo forcing Jandi to say “I’m sorry oppa” in a cute voice when apologizing to him

MOST TOUCHING GOO JUNPYO LINE:

Looks, money, status I have it all… I don’t need that from you all you need is to be Geum Jandi

MOST TOUCHING GEUM JANDI LINE:

“I haven’t lost to you, and I am not running away either. You’re the worst person I’ve ever met. I’m leaving because I don’t wish to connect the ones I love to you. I’m just sorry that I can’t save the one person I love the most from you.” …

BEST YOON JIHOO LINE:

“I don’t know when it started either. But now, I can’t be without you.”

BEST SONG WOOBIN LINE:

YEAH… (said when he just beat up a thug in Macau and they asked if he was Prince Song)

BEST SO YIJUNG LINE:

There are things we have to go through in order to become stronger, and to find our true selves. Like what you went through today.

    Since it was aired in Malaysia, until now, I am still can’t help feeling unsatisfied, aching in my heart about the moment that could be totally awesome but got totally fizzled out, that is : Junpyo’s father being alive all that while. Maybe what I really want to see is remorse from Lady Kang but all I got was father woke up from coma but the fact that Jandi was the one with warmth spent time reading stories was not acknowledged

    I know about your feelings on the Ji Hoo – Jan Di relationship… I know it’s meant to be Jun Pyo and Gan Di, but I ended up rooting for the honourable firefighter.
